Mark Nesbitt is a former Park Service employee who was stationed at Gettysburg and had several odd experiences during his tenure. His experiences, along with those of his fellow Park employees convinced the Ohio native that Gettysburg was a very haunted place. With that in mind, Nesbitt started to collect ghost stories and his collection soon led to this book and it's predecessor. There seems to be no lack of material to be found in this place where so many died such horrible deaths in July of 1863.
Mr. Nesbitt does an excellent job of providing his readers with eyewitness accounts, the single most important facet of a book like this. All of the accounts given are backed up by at least one other person's experiences and all of the accounts are of a recent nature. He also hits a good balance between exploring the history and possible origin of the haunt and telling the story of the people who have recently experienced the ghost. There are no stories found in this book that contain pages of history and then one little paragraph about the ghost, which is a flaw found in so many books of this type. This is a pitfall that I'm sure that Mr. Nesbitt had to work hard to avoid because it would have been very easy for him to ramble on about the battle itself for pages and pages. I say this because the author appears to be a student of the battle who definitely knows his stuff.
There are unfortunately a few negative aspects that I found in this book but they weren't all that distracting. For one thing, Mr.Read more ›
It was also very reasonable to purchase. I love american history. It had the ghost stories on the battlegrounds and Pennyslvania Hall, Triangular field, The Rose farm, and more. The Civil war had 51,000 total casualties so there are a lot of people that got killed. Paranormal activity is high. I recommend this easy reading book.
